Note to self. Things I’ve learned along the way.

Note to self. Things I’ve learned along the way.

Life is a learning experience, and most of us could write a book about the things we’ve learned along the way.  I have a few things I probably wouldn’t put in my book of life lessons, but they are important things I’ve learned.  Such as:

  • Never feed a gaseous dog broccoli.
  • TSA agents do not have a sense of humor no matter how hard you try.Thinking man
  • Do not drink a Coke while eating Mentos.
  • A cat is really, really hard to bathe.
  • I am not exempt from gravity.
  • Never wash reds and whites together.
  • Do not park under a power line.  Birds love to use your car for target practice.
  • If you post your phone number online, people will call you.  A lot of people will call you.
  • I retain ice cream.
  • No matter how good they taste, fish smell bad before, during and after you cook them.  Hours after.
  • A package will only be lost in the mail when it has to be there in 24 hours.
  • The Internet will go down just as you hit save on your blog.
  • You shouldn’t say everything that comes to mind.
  • Politicians are prone to amnesia right after elections.
  • A two hour project always takes 4 hours.
  • Your previous listing will sell within days of a new agent taking it over at your original suggested list price.  She is a genius and you were a moron.
  • A birthday or anniversary will only be forgotten if it’s a really big one.
  • Toast always falls butter side down.
  • Best of all, every day of learning is a good day.
